Ricardo's story

Ricardo worked for a photography firm for 8 years but noting that his income was insufficient to support his home decided to become independent and set up his own business. This is how he started taking photos in one of the city’s main parks. In addition, he works nights at home in a cabinet-making shop he also started. In this way he’s been able to improve his income and overcome the great difficulty of being a head of household with a four-year-old son because his son’s mother abandoned them some time ago leaving him with all the responsibilities. His main difficulty is that he has little working capital which is why he’s now looking for a loan to buy a battery he needs for the car he uses to take the children’s photos in the park and also to buy supplies for the cabinet-making workshop he operates at night at home. His dream is to be able to improve his income and buy a house of his own to have better economic stability and a better home for his son.
